Jenna Jameson Addresses Fans' Claims Fiancé Murdered Her: 'F****** Dark'

Jenna Jameson has spoken out against bizarre claims from "weirdos" that her fiancé, Lior Bitton, murdered her as she continues to recover from a mystery illness.

The former adult film star, 48, posted an Instagram Story on Tuesday to refute the claims were being made—and prove that she's still very much alive.

Speaking in a self-recorded video from her bed, the model said: "I wanted to pop on and address a few weirdos that are saying that, like, my... that Lior killed me and I'm, like, fertilizer."

"No, I'm here, it's me," Jameson assured after laughing at the accusations. "I guess I have to show my face every so often to prove that I haven't been murdered. It's so f****** dark. Anyway, I hope your day's going well."

Per posts shared on social media, Bitton spends much of his time in Los Angeles with his and Jameson's 5-year-old daughter Batel Lu, while the star continues to recover from her as-yet-undiagnosed illness in Hawaii.

Back in April, Jameson explained the arrangement, telling her Instagram followers: "She [Batel Lu] has been in L.A. with her father, which it's been good and bad, her being there, because of course I'm able to like really focus on my health, which is the most important thing right now."

"I just miss her so much. It's seriously like someone's ripped my heart out," added Jameson, who has also shared footage of her daughter visiting her in Hawaii.

Jameson's 13-year-old twin sons, Jesse Jameson and Journey Jette, are in the custody of their father, UFC star Tito Ortiz, from whom she split in 2013.

Bitton's most recent Instagram post, which shows his daughter jumping into a swimming pool, has been flooded with questions over the status of his relationship with Jameson, who isn't following him on one of her two Instagram accounts.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, Jameson revealed in another video message that she is now able to walk to the bathroom unaided, after months of relying on a walker and wheelchair.

"I want to show you guys that I'm walking unaided," she said in an Instagram Story post that showed her feet as she walked. "I mean, I'm not walking perfectly, but at least I'm up on my feet."

She added: "So guys, I'm feeling better. I am able to walk pretty well. How cool is that? I'm feeling a lot better."

In a post shared on her Instagram grid, Jameson wrote: "Still working to walk. But it's the little victories like getting to the bathroom without a walker or wheelchair that keep me pushing forward. Please pray for my legs, i can use all the help I can get!"

Jameson was initially misdiagnosed with rare autoimmune disorder Guillain-Barré syndrome back in January as muscle atrophy in her legs left her unable to walk unaided and reliant on a wheelchair.

Following months of assuring fans that her recovery was heading in the right direction, the model took to Instagram in June to reveal that she was experiencing a setback.

"I'm not feeling very good," Jameson said in a video posted on her Instagram Story. "It looks I am going to have to go back into the hospital, and I am not excited about that. But I have to do what I have to do."

Jameson had been previously released from hospital in February, after doctors spent several weeks treating her and attempting to diagnose her illness.

Back in April, she revealed that she had been working with a therapist who deals with "memory, like cognitive issues," explaining: "Since all of this went down, I have like lapses in my memory. My short-term memory is trash. It's just trash.

"My long-term is great, like I remember everything from my childhood. Can I remember only short-term stuff and forget the long-term? Because seriously it would probably be good for me."

She then went on to explain that medical professionals have informed her that her memory may have been negatively impacted by the stress of her illness. Jameson added her own theory that a lack of sleep may also be at the root of the issue.

"They seem to think that it [could] more be tied into stress," she said. "They think that it is a stress issue and less of a cognitive issue. So the brain is working, which is a good thing. That's my best asset—I mean, some people might argue, but whatever."

Jameson also said she had started taking supplements after discovering that she had "very low" thiamine levels.

"We're still kind of looking for answers," she said in a video shot from her bed. "One thing that's happening is that I have very low thiamine levels, which can affect a lot of different things in the body, including walking. Go figure.

"I think that my lack of thiamine in my body is definitely not helping... So I am taking a lot of vitamin B1 and doing a lot of physical therapy and hoping for the best. So keep me in your prayers."

Thiamine, which is found naturally in a number of foods and can be taken as a supplement, plays a vital role in energy metabolism and in the growth, development, and function of cells, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Early stages of a thiamine deficiency can cause "weight loss and anorexia, confusion, short-term memory loss, and other mental signs and symptoms; muscle weakness; and cardiovascular symptoms (such as an enlarged heart)," per the government agency.

Bitton said on Instagram back in January that the model had been "throwing up for a couple weeks," which led to her initial hospitalization. She underwent a CT scan before doctors sent her home, according to Bitton.

"Then she came back home and she couldn't carry herself," Bitton said. "Her muscles in her legs were very weak. So she wasn't able to walk to the bathroom.

"She was falling on the way back or to the bathroom. I would have to pick her up and carry her to bed. And then within two days it got really not so good. Her legs started to not hold her—she wasn't able to walk."
